Angel is very upset because we can never find caterpillars of butterflies, it's so sad.

When I was a kid and we lived near Hope BC and there was a field full of broom plant, there were tons of Swallowtail butterflies and we were always playing with caterpillars. Sometimes we'd see great big moths, and the evening was filled with the sound of  June bugs.

We found a lot of butterflies in Zipolite, the first winter on the road that runs from the back road to Shambhala, but the second year was so dry, there were hardly any.

I pray we can turn things around and we can have lots of butterflies again.
